Synthesis Technology E520 Hyperion Stereo Effects Processor (Sneak Preview)

Synthesist Ben Wilson (aka Divkid) shared this sneak preview of the Synthesis Technology E520 Hyperion Stereo Effects Processor, an upcoming Eurorack format multi-effects processor.

Wilson notes:

“Here’s the second video with the already lovely sounding E520 big exposed prototype from Synthesis Technology. This will be a Eurorack module for it’s release next year but this is just the development prototype.

In this video we explore some other FX, some updates to things we’ve already seen and bathe in not only a lovely shimmer bath … but some gorgeous tape style degradation loops that deteriorate with feedback, warble, saturation and filtering like real tape based sound on sound looping. Heck, I even broke out the Telecaster for a change. “
